Question about Whirlpool Duet 7.0 Cu. Ft. Super Capacity Plus Electric Dryer
I have a HE2 dryer by kenmore, there is power to the unit it lights up. the other night I did a ton of laundry, when i took the last load out I noticed that the light burnt out. Today I went to put a load of laundry in and turned it on then it wouldnt start, it only beeps three times, powers up and all. I tried unplugging it and repluging it in and flipped and checked the breaker. Could it not work because of the light? that sounds like it wouldnt be that but ive seen some crazeier things. any help would be appreciated we dont have the money to call a repair man and were out of warrently of course. Had I known other people had problems with his dryer I would have never bought it...
Kahuna240 here and I am having the same problem with my Elite Oasis dryer. I start the dryer and it runs a few minutes and shuts off. Then it comes back on and beeps 3 times. I have cleaned out the vents, the dryer, and the outside vent. I never get an error code and sometimes it runs longer than others. It is very warm inside when it stops (not excessive heat) but I wonder if this problem is thermal. Same problem..........any soltions?
It appears your thermal fuse has failed in this instance. After the machine begins to warm up - the fail thermally expands, and no longer makes contact.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...
The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...
